The Tour

Boat & Bike in Masuria - MS Classic Lady

Masuria, the southern part of the region formerly known as East Prussia and Poland‘s largest lake district is the destination of this journey. Many have left their mark here: the Baltic Prussians, the Teutonic Order, the evangelic Masurians and the Prussian State. Since then the Polish government has transformed the densely wooded Masurian lake district into a touristic area. The region offers countless water sport activities and can easily be explored by bike. As this tour in Masuria by boat and bike will take you through slightly hilly terrain, you should have a basic level of physical fitness. A knowledgeable tour guide will cycle with you.
